Nominees for harness racing top horsemen awards have been announced by the Saint John Harness Horsemen for the upcoming awards gala.
Horse person of the Year will be a three way race between Mike Downey, Wayne Hubbard, and Bob MacNeil. Downey was inducted this year into the Fredericton Raceway Wall of Fame and will be looking to build on that momentum.
Owner of the year has also attracted three very deserving finalists. This award will be sponsored by Standardbred Canada and will be presented by Darren Crowe at the May 10th ceremonies.
Ultimate Stable, Dr. Mitchell Downey, and the Downey Stables will compete for the coveted award. This should be a tough category and the S.J.H.H.A would like to congratulate the nominees.
